Re: Simple and obvious
He was evil that he would create beings that are able to tell between what is right and wrong, Wouldn’t it have made more sense for him him to have created an immoral world without any morality in it at all, no remorse no pity, no love; if God was evil in fact wouldn’t he wreak havoc on this earth, by the abuse of his power?
This is in fact what one finds if one looks around one in the world.
Consider the all-encompassing suffering in the natural world, with animals eating each other alive and horrible diseases destroying people not lucky enough to be born into an advanced society. If there is a god, he/she/it must be a savage sadist that enjoys suffering (since he/she/it has provided so much of it).
I have said in an earlier post that we owe the morality present in the world to God that is of course, if God exists and I personally believe he does due to the meaninglessness that would so suddenly enshroud our existence if he didn't.
Why do you assume that our existence has meaning above what we ourselves give it? You have fallen for the lies of the flock-fleecers!
